The drag link should be a blued steel. You can get it by using a good gun blue. I used gun blue on mine and treated it with sharkhide.  I also finished my idler arm and drive shaft with sharkhide. The main mounting shaft for the idler arm should have the sameblue finish, the rest of the idler arm is natural steel.. I am sending a picture.

I treated both by front coil springs and rear leafs with Sharkhide, It wipes on clear and leaves no buildup and will not rust. Really great on parts that flex. The  finish soaks in so will not crack or fade.  Here is a picture. I have pictures of my rear springs on another thread here. I don' know how to link to it. Thanks, Scoop

I was at the Mecum Auction in Indianapolis this week and watched this Turquoise RS Z28 Cross Ram sell for 100K. I took a lot of pictures and am posting a few.  It had the fender well signed by GM development engineer Jerry Thompson.  You can look it up at Mecums website.  If anyone wants other info let me know.

Yes that is what I used.  You just apply it with a piece of a coton diaper for a real thin layer. If you spray it it will get to heavy.  Sharkhide has a website. I have called and they are very helpful if you have questions or concerns.  If you try it let me know what you think.  Good luck,,, Scoop

I purchased my springs from Camaro Specialties three years ago. I treated them and installed  them and ran the car for two years. Last fall I completely stripped the car for a full restoration. I just re installed them. The pictures are the same spring. I only wiped them down with laquer thinner and applied a fresh coat of Sharkhide. Pictures do not always show exact color.  The sharkhide keeps the original color of the spring. If you see them in person they look llike bare steel. Hope this answers your question. I will send another picture with different light which makes them look a little darker.   Thanks, Scoop

As far as a protective finish for the leaf springs I used a product called Sharkhide. It is a clear liquid  that is you apply to bare metal. It goes on like laquer thinner and is absorbed into the metal.The metal will not rust and leaves the natural look. I purchased my springs from Camaro Specialities and cleaned them with laquer thinner to remove all the oil and used an air hose to get everything out from between the leafs. Then I flooded  the Sharkhide between the leafs and again used a air hose to force the sharkhide for complete coverage between the leafes, and then applied it to the rest of the springs and wiped everythng down.  They look geat and you don't have to worry about rust and keeps the natural look. I have not figured out how to post pictures but if anyone wants to see what they look like they can e mail me and I will sent them.   Thanks, Scoop

You are right. There seems to be many things the judges say are correct buy contradict many documented original cars. Not saying I agree with the judges but just wanted to let you know what they look for.  Thanks, Scoop
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear Wheel Well Plugs - Before or After Undercoating? on: December 21, 2012, 09:14:54 PM
I have been told by the Camaro Nationals Judges that the wheel well plugs need to have undercoating on them to be correct. Scoop
